Sleep Deprivation, what's that?

I very easily may be jinxing myself, but I want to write this post because I am curious as to how Claire was at this age. I remember being EXHAUSTED. I remember wondering and bouncing and swaying and shushing in the middle of the night all night long. I do not remember 2-3 hour chunks of sleep on a regular basis all night long. I only remember maybe sleeping 2 or 3 hours total for the night. Patrick is a sleepy boy and loves to wake up only to nurse. He falls back asleep instantly and stays unswaddled in his bed next to our bed. I began wondering today, if it because he is going to be trouble in the future. Will he be like his Daddy, keeping me up all hours of the night when he's a teenager? I fear this, but I cannot stress over it now, as I am one happy mama since he is letting me sleep soundly every night and I truly am not sleep deprived. Life is really good right now.

7 days new

Seriously, 7 days have gone by and our little man has completely fit right into our lives. He is absolutely perfect. By Saturday he had peed on both of us for the first time. Holy boy pee stream; it was like fireworks, yet urine. Gross. By Tuesday he had gained all his weight lost back. He was 8 lbs 13 oz at his first doctor's appointment. We were told he was healthy and perfect. He sat in the car at his first lacrosse game. By Wednesday my milk was completely in. By Thursday Claire was excited to see Patrick and he attended his first real lacrosse game. By Friday he peed on me for the second time. I jumped. It was kind of scary.

Got sleep?

Little guy was a sleeping rockstar last night! Looks like he doesn't want to be swaddled so I put him down, arms wide as can be, no blanket and e slept for 2-3 hour increments and woke up 2-3 times o be changed a nurse. Here's to hoping this becomes a pattern.
